They both have that episodic element about it and although Beautiful Bones has a more realistic approach, XXXHOLiC and Beautiful Bones do have that same feel about it. I enjoy both anime very much, and do believe that if you like one, you'd like the other too.The both also have the "high school boy" helping and assisting the "older woman" trope so the relationship in that sense is also similar, although Beautiful Bones' male protagonist is less eccentric than XXXHOLiC's.
The shows have the same feel to them, despite one being quite grounded and the other being quite fantastical. A lot of that similarity comes from the relationships between the teenaged male protagonists and the older female protagonists who..."mentor" them. Which, if you like the interactions of the one pair, you will absolutely like the interactions of the other.

Both has an element of investigation and mystery, although I think there's a lot more to come from Bungou. Sakurako-san is a really cute character though and I really like her depth. That said, Bungou has a lot of characters with depth (yet to be completely explored...so wait for season 2 :P ).
I think the art is similarly nice in both, but I do appreciate the outbursts of humour in Bungou which I think is generally absent from Beautiful Bones (understandably).
Both Anime are truly amazing. Bungou is similar to Beautiful Bones with it's abnormal investigation methods which are very catchy in both series. Although Beautiful Bones isn't close to supernatural category, I still think that those who watched both would agree that they are different though similalry amazing.

Both of these anime revolve around strong, smart female characters that don't 100% fit in to the world around them. These animes are also both crime dramas where unusual cases are solved via unusual methods. Beautiful Bones does lack the futuristic dystopia twist, but if the crime-solving aspect and main character were what you enjoyed from Psycho-Pass, you'll probably enjoy Beautiful Bones as well.
